Never had this.. Loosen the screw and try to move the back a little? Maybe take a pic to pinpoint where its coming from?

Vubratiion update w/pic

Took out the carbon fiber intake assemblies to clean filters for first time since install, approx. 8k and about 8 mos. as well.

Amazingly clean, only had to shake out debris and clean up edges, and nooks, etc.

I have kept close eye on ductwork coming from brake ducts, and the d.s. had already come out of place from not being snapped in the bottom properly. This duct remains solid after adj. shortly after install.

The p.s. duct would normally be secured up top by the oem airbox.
Since it is gone the duct has worked into a state of possible vibration from lack of stabilisation from above.

We used foam backed door and window tape to secure the duct from possible movement to and fro. See pic with one side applied.

Job well done sir...

Getting that bottom part of the duct to snap into its place is not very easy... But once done correctly, its very hard to take off or come loose..

Evolve Eventuri CAI Air Duct / Lower Scoop Re-installation Tip

Partially agree - to all the other search result tips found from others who claim kidney grill replacement is a breeze and can be done without undoing the top of the bumper or being able to reach through the kidney grills, or even just 'pressing on the tabs', yada yada yada... bulllllllllllshit.

Hard to do the 1st time, may require twisting motion to loosen the vertical air duct. 2 vice grip pliers attached to the vertical air duct will be your best friends in this scenario.

Where the duct goes down into its place, the plastic wheel liner is right next to it, you can push the wheel liner in towards the wheel so you make room for your hand to reach down and guide the duct in, this is what worked for me..
THIS was the hardest part of the install - I'm willing to bet there are others who did this install who thought they did this part right or worse, gave up and said fock it and just left the air duct disconnected.

Thank you for documenting this crucial tip - hoping that others searching this forum for help on re-installing the vertical air ducts with lower scoops back into place will find your tip via 'search' more easily.

(Caveat: unsure if this tip is only applicable to LCI models) Since the front bumper's lower air dam/duct (that the vertical air ducts connect to) are made of flexible plastic, twisting/pushing the vertical air ducts w/lower scoops installed back into place was not easy at all. Imagine pushing the vertical air duct into the top hole of an an empty tissue box that has 1 vertical side on the box removed. Very mushy and unstable.

My contributing tip... you may benefit from following 5soko's tip and then "guide" really means, use your hand to stabilize/pull up the outer lip of the flexible plastic base vertically against the direction of the vertical air duct until it pops back in place. Note: This still takes considerable effort but is much more feasible than without this tip.

To put the ducts in put your hand in the airduct at front bumper then push it down, clicks in easy
